Dittersdorf – Cadenza for Dittersdorf Concerto: First Movement

Dittersdorf’s Double Bass Concerto no.2 is a frequently-requested piece in auditions, and is an important part of the double bass repertoire. Over the years there have been a number of cadenzas written for it, including Sperger’s early cadenza and the well-known Gruber cadenza. This new cadenza by Bogusław Furtok provides a dazzling showpiece for the first movement, and would be a great addition to any performance of the work.
